Wildlife of Costa Rica

Wildlife of Costa Rica

Costa Rica is rightly famed for its wildlife. In Tortuguero National Park, for example, may well see big cats like ocelots, pumas and margays, as well as capuchin, spider monkeys and a fabulous array of colourful and rare birds. 

Resplendent quetzal anyone? In the Monteverde Cloud Forest you’ll find coatis, monkeys and dazzling hummingbirds. The Osa Peninsula has tapir, the elusive jaguar and scarlet macaws – plus an underwater reserve with a coral garden and visiting humpback whales, pilot whales and dolphin.

Visit Manuel Antonio National Park and monkeys, agoutis, sloth and iguanas will be your companions – unless you decide to stay on the immaculate beaches nearby.
